Bloggings: February 8, 2008

by Christopher T. Musillo of the Hammond Law Group

February 01, 2008

Lobbying in January

The CTIHS is continuing to press Congress for increased visa numbers for healthcare workers. As readers may recall, last fall, the CTIHS, along with partners, was able to get the Senate to pass a bill authorizing 61,000 visas for healthcare workers. Unfortunately that bill failed to win House approval.

This year the lobbying effort has continued with a focus on talking with House members. Several meetings happened in January and we’re optimistic that something can be done in the near term. The biggest hurdle may be that the Presidential race is going to suck up a lot of the politicians’ time in 2008.
